Children’s play area – Eleftherios Venixzelos Int. Airport, Athens

A common problem that all plane travelers with small children face is how to keep their young kids busy in between flights, while waiting at the airport, sometimes for many hours!

Kids are hard to be kept safe in the large corridors and areas of international airports, always crowded with people! It is normal that all parents are seeking a quiet, safe place to keep their kids busy during all those long hours of waiting in the airport area.

The charity organization HAMOGELO TOU PAIDIOU (Smile of a Child) has created such a special play area at the Athens International Airport of Eleftherios Venizelos.

The space is not large but efficiently equipped with lots of toys to offer plenty of busy and creative hours to children. The staff is kind and with a smile on their face, speaking many foreign languages.

• Art &Craft • Painting • Role Playing Activities • Board Games & puzzles • Interactive Storytelling • Children’s Books in several languages • Lego Construction Blocks • Soft Play Area • Various Educational Toys Other Facilities: Baby Change Area and Children’s toilet
